This advanced memoir course led by Patti Miller is for those who want to write more than a record or a history, for those who are ready for a creative journey. This course will refresh the technique of writing from original memory and creating the texture of lived experience on the page, and will explore narrating voice, storytelling and narrative pacing and structure. There will be a special trouble-shooting section on the problems in finding form – an invaluable insight into the structural pitfalls that can await the memoirist – based on Patti’s work critiquing hundreds of manuscripts.
Writing NSW plans to run this course face-to-face. However, depending on the COVID-19 situation, it may need to run in whole or part online. Therefore, internet access and confidence using basic computer software including email are essential for this course, as participants must be able to share chapters for workshopping. We will confirm with participants whether the course will begin as a face-to-face or online course a week prior to the course start date.
